The conference was horrid. I really don't get why they said they were going to have a big dive on those 4 games? They showed the same content as they usually do in previous E3 regarding their 1st party games. I was expecting see Kojima explaining the game after the trailer and give us more context at least, or the director of TLOU2 explaining WHERE THE FU(K is Joel; or more explanation of the combat of Ghost of Tsushima.
Considering what they said they were going to show (BIG DIVE) it was an utter disappointment.
Having said so, Ghost of Tsuhima and Spiderman were phenomenal along with the RE2 reveal. But still those are the things you would expect on a normal E3, NOT IN A "BIG DIVE"
EDIT they are streaming RE2 GAMEPLAY on Live.playstation.com..... WHY THE HELL THEY DID NOT SHOWED THIS AT THE CONFERENCE!!!! I dont know what Sony is thinking!!!
I mean... that is just your own expectations being heightened and not met. I said this to someone else like a week ago but the deep dive was obviously going to be exactly what we got at their event: as in the major gameplay demos.
But regardless this a complete fundamental misunderstanding of how Sony does their conferences anyways. Sony disseminates E3 info via their conference, the PS Blog (on a daily basis) and through their E3 livestreaming (which they actually did before Nintendos treehouse). This is 3 different avenues to present their games. Give you a visual feast at E3. Get more detailed gameplay understanding at the livestream (if the dev is going to do that) and some explanations of stuff on the PS blog.
They didnt show RE2 gameplay because now they have RE2 news cycle twice instead of once. Yu have ppl talking about the trailer from the conference. Now we have ppl talking about the gameplay afterwards.
This might be annoying to you, but this is how Sony has been handling their info for games. Just look at their Youtube account. RE2 vid has 870k views, the 2nd trailer has 951k and the gameplay demo has 121k atm.
The presentation for the conference sucked, but they are getting stuff out for their games. Could it be better? Of course. But this is how they usually do things.
